Hello again.

I’ve just returned from the fabulous NICABM conference in Hilton Head. One of the great things about being there is the tremendous knowledge, resources and tips you can pick up from the attendees, who are extremely knowledgeable and experienced, not to mention the other presenters.

One such moment came when a counselor in my pre-conference workshop who works with troubled, chemically dependent young adults from disadvantaged parts of the city, told me about a rap guided meditation by a gifted, charismatic rapper/artist/producer/martial arts teacher from Oakland named "Professor Pitt" (his given name is Phillip T. Colas) who is downright amazing. He’s producing, with Matthew Fox, a rap-meditation DVD that’s perfect for inner city kids looking for some guidance they can relate to. It’s based on the 10 principles Matthew Fox has developed in his YELLAWE project: Youth and Elder Learning Laboratory for Ancestral Wisdom Education. It’s a brilliant and captivating piece of work for any viewer of any age and any background.

The only way you can sample it that I can figure out it is to click on this link and then you’ll get to watch and hear this dazzling work. Trust me, you too will be agog.

Don’t forget to check out our holiday sale goodies - the Stress Less Gift Pack and the Holiday Gift Pack for Children. Both are already flying off the shelves. They’re great gifts.

OK, take care and be well.
